We’ve found the djembe to be a great addition to an acoustic set. It’s versatile and rich in tone but not overpowering. Following are a series of nine video tutorials by Roy, covering a number of different meters and tempos. Roy shows how different types of hits can be used to represent the kick, snare, and high hat, all within a contemporary/acoustic style that works well to support corporate singing.
Roy is playing a Mondo 14-inch djembe, made by Remo; and he’s using Promark retractable nylon brushes.
